When you’re exhausted and stressed out, small things can be upsetting and out of all proportion to their real significance. I’ve been spreading myself too thin recently, trying to fulfill my personal and professional commitments.
Although I’m covering all the big bases of adult life, such as career, family, and relationships, pretty well, I have been physically worn out. Not being able to teach a 6 a.m class this morning because of a fever, coupled with a blocked sink and broken air conditioner, I almost broke down. This was the final straw, and I knew for certain that I needed a break.
I’m not complaining about the position that I’m in; in fact, this March has been one of the happiest months of my life. A month ago, someone messaged me on Facebook asking me what preparation he needed to make to be in the position that I was in. He was under the impression that I had my life figured out, but honestly, I was just trying to put my best foot forward and get through the day.
